Here in Portland, it's been a summer of detours. And some of them are much better than others.
Let's help the city make more of them good.
The Bicycle Transportation Alliance, fortunately, has noticed this problem. This Thursday, BTA intern Ruben Montes is hoping to meet with the City of Portland's Mark Lear and Craig Goodroad to start looking for ways the city can better design construction zones to work for active transportation.
We'd love to give them some material to talk about. So for the next few days, any time you see a detour in Portland that doesn't seem to prioritize human beings, or one that you think does so well, snap a photo and email it, with a few words about its location, to firstname.lastname@example.org or text it to me at 503-333-7824.
